On Saturday, Nov. 3rd, Powder River Basin Resource Council will host its 46th Annual Meeting at the Holiday Inn in Sheridan. This year’s theme, Our Water, Our Land, Our Legacy, features award-winning photographer and conservationist Michael Forsberg. For the last 25 years, Forsberg has been dedicated to documenting wildlife and conservation stories in the Great Plains, once one of the greatest grassland ecosystems on Earth. His images have been featured in publications including AudubonNational GeographicNature Conservancy, and Outdoor Photographer magazines. His artwork has been exhibited nationwide.

“In addition to his stunning photography, Michael’s conservation work should inspire all of us to do more, to appreciate and protect our grasslands. This will be a riveting presentation, and I hope people take advantage of having Michael here in the community,” said Joyce Evans, Powder River Chair. “If you’re interested in conservation, you’ll want to hear about his work.”

The public portion of Powder River’s Annual Meeting kicks off at 4 pm with a social hour, live music, and live & silent auctions. The dinner and keynote speaker will begin at 7 pm. Honoring Powder River’s commitment to local agriculture, this year’s dinner features Gourmet Lamb of Wyoming. Tickets are $45 for members and $55 for non-members (which includes a one-year membership). Everyone is welcome. For more information or to register for event, contact Powder River at 307-672-5809 or visit www.powderriverbasin.org.

 A selection of Forsberg’s photographs will be on display at the Sheridan County Fulmer Library throughout the month of November. To kick-off the exhibit, there will be a reception on Thursday, Nov. 1st from 5 – 7 pm at the library. Everyone is welcome at this free event.
